tree frogs - haiku

this night air is filled
with the chorus of tree frogs,
their songs give me sleep

Friday, August 14, 2020


Allow this cool breeze
to sweep over me as a silk scarf
tickled my warm skin
and I smile, once I loved

Allow this brilliant sun
to shine through trees
while loosing their leaves
only to find me in its spotlight

Allow the clear north air
to blow out its dampness
and allow my lungs
to inhale its freshness

Allow squirrels of grey, red and black
to chase each other and
fallen walnuts without spending
the day splayed upon fence-tops

Allow these tired eyes
watch light play in the garden
highlighting this and that
while earth revolves

Allow my ears to enjoy the chimes
stroked softly by the breeze
without interference of mowers and saws,
all I ask
is to hear their calming notes

frog song - haiku

the chorus begins
I have yearned to hear voices
singing in the night

At last the frog song has begun...
